Code Sample, a copy-pastable example if possible

Setup:

In [2]: s = pd.Series(pd.date_range('20180101', periods=3, tz='US/Eastern'))

In [3]: s
Out[3]:
0   2018-01-01 00:00:00-05:00
1   2018-01-02 00:00:00-05:00
2   2018-01-03 00:00:00-05:00
dtype: datetime64[ns, US/Eastern]

Timezone information is lost after using cut:

In [4]: pd.cut(s, 2)
Out[4]:
0    (2018-01-01 04:57:07.200000, 2018-01-02 05:00:00]
1    (2018-01-01 04:57:07.200000, 2018-01-02 05:00:00]
2           (2018-01-02 05:00:00, 2018-01-03 05:00:00]
dtype: category
Categories (2, interval[datetime64[ns]]): [ <
                                           (2018-01-01 04:57:07.200000, 2018-01-02 05:00:00] <
                                           (2018-01-02 05:00:00, 2018-01-03 05:00:00]]

Timezone information is lost after using qcut:

In [5]: pd.qcut(s, 2)
Out[5]:
0    (2018-01-01 04:59:59.999999999, 2018-01-02 05:...
1    (2018-01-01 04:59:59.999999999, 2018-01-02 05:...
2           (2018-01-02 05:00:00, 2018-01-03 05:00:00]
dtype: category
Categories (2, interval[datetime64[ns]]): [ <
                                           (2018-01-01 04:59:59.999999999, 2018-01-02 05:0... <
                                           (2018-01-02 05:00:00, 2018-01-03 05:00:00]]
